The End Of An Amazing Special Event For Our Very Happy Campers

Today was another great day of Big Weekend. Just after breakfast the 6 teams had rallies to work on their Songs and Formations. The coaches of each team were asked to write a parody song about their team and the others. Our eldest campers, who live in buildings called Hut 6 and Juniper, had the task of teaching these songs to the rest of their teams. It's part of their learning to be effective leaders in our community. After practicing their songs for a while the campers then began to work on their formations. Each team was tasked with telling a story about their mythological character by using their team members' bodies to form shapes, letters, and even animated characters. Some teams had their campers wear 3 and 4 layers of different colored t-shirts, removing them at strategic times to help tell their story. This was a truly collaborative project, and everyone on the team had the opportunity to give their input.
